Gordon Lightfoot - Your Love's Return Lyrics




Come to the door my pretty one
Put on your rings and precious things
Hide all your tears as best you can
Try to recall what used to be
Roses are waiting for dewdrops to fall
Climbing your windows and walls
Bells in steeple are ringing, singing
Listen to them talk about your love's return

Let me come in my pretty one
And try to undo what I have done
For I must be forgiven now
I will not lose what I have won

Roses are waiting for dewdrops to fall
Climbing your windows and walls
Leaves in the garden are falling, calling
Listen to them talk about your love's return

Open the door my pretty one
Wake from your sleep and take me home
Open your eyes and look my way
I cannot leave your love alone

Roses are waiting for dewdrops to fall
Climbing your windows and walls
Bells in steeple are ringing, singing
Listen to them talk about your love's return

    Him and Jim Croce hit that same spot.

  2. Brent Campbell

    God gives all a talent and/or skill. The lucky ones find these gems. It's a forgone conclusion. Mr.Lightfoot found these gems from within. The rest of us reap the benefits of what he's realized. He even says so in a song he wrote "If it should please you." Another circle of life, that has no ending. Life doesn't get any better than that. Enjoy.....!
